It was a damp and dreary Sunday afternoon after an endlessly wet week, and yet scores of wonderful wild swimmers turned out to hear our talk about the swims of Torbay (see below). THANK YOU to all who came, and who then, in true Dunkirk spirit, braved the foul weather to walk to the cliff railway and head down to Oddicombe Beach for a dip. Not for us a balmy swim in flat blue seas on a sunny summer's afternoon. No siree! Instead we had pounding surf, swirling sands and JELLYFISH! Several people were stung, fortunately not badly. Don't you just love the English summer? Thanks to Sally Morgan for the picture.
